Ah!, and can you tell me, is this the Roddick forum? This is Gaston's forum, and we're here to talk about Gaston, not Roddick. You cant help bringing him up, every time you post can you? Go ahead, and call me mean and nasty, and whatever, but atleast stay on topic.

Who will do the honors here? All that is just a thread away.....

167. Because his fans are courteous, and want to keep a clean forum, free from trolls.

He loves children. Now see, that makes him a great guy in my book. #168: Because he's a compassionate person.

Oh, geez, I can see this turning into a wasteland for non-fans with insincere motives. Someone, please get a moderator before this happens.

172. For managing to keep and maintain people interested even ones with insincere motives.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

177. For not giving into the negative feelings during the first 2 sets in which he said "I want to leave. I've had it. I can't believe I'm playing as badly as this." We are glad that he stayed in the end.

Re: 1001 reasons why we LOVE Gaston!

178: For putting his family first and showing such great respect for them. He cites his Father (now thankfully recovered from a life-threatening illness as Marc mentioned earlier), for being his greatest inspiration, and his brother often travels with him on tour. Also, when asked where he thought he would be in 10 years time, he said he just wants to be settled with a wife and children

And for those who haven't seen this - thought I would include this photo of Gaston visiting sick kids in hospital (as mentioned by Alma earlier). This photo is "borrowed" from a friend of mine - thanks Melu
